The 2019 Volvo XC60 is one of the strongest contenders in the luxury SUV segment. It has abundant passenger space, an updated interior with attractive design, and easy-to-use infotainment interfaces. And under the hood, three different powertrains offer varying levels of performance and fuel efficiency, regardless of what trim level you choose.
Under the hood are three different versions of the same four-cylinder engine. One is turbocharged, another is turbocharged and supercharged, and the third is a plug-in hybrid. What’s best is that buyers can pair any of these powertrains with any trim level, meaning no powertrain-equipment-level combo is off the table.
As for the equipment, the XC60 comes with the tech you’d expect in this segment, such as dual-zone climate control, an attractive 9-inch infotainment display, and standard support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also gets safety technology such as road-departure mitigation, lane keeping assist and a drowsy-driver warning system. From there, the options stack up nicely too, with lots of functional and aesthetic add-ons. Equiped also with R-Design and Inscription add 14-speaker stereo, blind-spot monitoring, keyless entry and drive, power-folding rear outer head restraints, and a parking assistance system
While the XC60 RDesign is an easy recommendation, we should note some drawbacks. For starters, the driving experience isn’t as sporty as it is in some competitors, and the cabin isn’t as insulated from noise. Those definitely aren’t deal-breakers, though, and we’d certainly recommend anyone in the market for a luxury SUV take the 2019 Volvo XC60 for a spin.
